Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Stone Center for Inequality Dynamics at the University of Michigan invites applications for the position of Research Assistant Professor.

We are looking for an enterprising scholar with research interests in wealth inequality and excitement for creating and using novel data products to support the study of socio-economic inequality. You will be able to pursue these research interests through external funding and collaborate with other scholars in ongoing research programs at the University of Michigan and beyond. You will also have the opportunity to be involved in a new, large-scale effort to estimate wealth and its intergenerational persistence across the entire United States based on an existing collaboration with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and help distribute such estimates to the research community, policymakers, and broader public.

Successful candidates will have strong quantitative skills, exposure to multiple types of data, and interest in or demonstrated record of contributing to interdisciplinary efforts to advance foundational inequality research. Examples of particularly relevant areas of interest for this position include – but are not restricted to – research on net worth inequality, housing wealth and housing markets, taxation and public economics, or racial and ethnic inequality in wealth.
